As Strawbery Banke approaches the end of its fiscal year on March 31, 2023, the Museum faces a financial challenge with the Strawbery Banke Fund (Annual Fund) running short of its goal.
The Strawbery Banke Fund provides unrestricted support that ensures the Museum is able to keep its doors open throughout the season for visitors. Without this support, Strawbery Banke cannot meet the basic needs of museum operations. Areas such as school education programs, historic home preservation, upkeep of the historic landscapes and gardens, and everyday maintenance suffer.
Liberty Fare Dining, Strawbery Banke Museum's new cafe partner, has generously stepped forward with a matching challenge and is matching every gift made dollar-for-dollar, up to $25,000, during the month of March.
Please make a gift today by using the “Make a Gift” button below or by calling Sarah Regan, Donor and Visitor Services Associate at 603.241.1644. Every dollar you contribute immediately doubles and helps Strawbery Banke remain open and vibrant.
